My name is Soumya. I work as a long term substitute teacher. My preferred pronouns are she/her/hers. I teach Math, ELA, Equity Studies and Science for 2nd grade and this is my first year at AoA.
My last job was as a Second grade long term substitute teacher at a school in San Jose. A fun fact about me is that I still play Ludo, Snake and Ladder games seriously and I am addicted to my tea. I like being outdoors and enjoy walking, hiking, etc.
I hold a Masters in Science and have a Single Subject Science Teaching Credential. I am looking forward to apply for Multiple Subject Credential by end of March 2021. Teaching is my passion and I have worked as long term and short term substitute teacher in Cupertino and San Ramon and in India too.
I am relatively new to AoA and I am so excited to be part of a team who support each other and are very well connected. I feel happy to be part of an organization where I know I can receive enough support and guidance to succeed.
Another factor that motivates me are the students of AoA. Despite being in an online classroom for a long time, these students attend their online class with lot of excitement and interest. It is a delight to see their beautiful faces in the morning and gives me lot of energy and enthusiasm to work.
